way is, let's go back to year 2000 defense department levels. we have a very bloated, wasteful military budget that has doubled over the year 2000. are we twice as secure? i do not think so. we can look at the blow back happening across the middle east. you can see having this hyper military is a man these drone wars and pakistan and somalia, which the president began to expand on day 3 and office. there were no republicans to blame it on. he began to expand the war effort massively. it is calling for $600 billion to renovate nuclear weapons and a new modes of delivering them. this is not the direction we need to go. we need a foreign policy based on human rights, not on the procurement of oil resources. we provide for a green a new deal that would directly create jobs. because it creates jobs in the green economy, it allows us to back off these wars for oil and save hundreds of billions of dollars on the bloated military. instead it puts that money into jobs, health care, and education -- the things we need at home to create national security. host: the biggest challenge is ge

economy and scaling back their plans. the defense contractors must send out notices so employees will be laid off. if you are a dividend investor and you are looking at, tax breaks january 1, you are broglie's starting to worry about the market. this is not some that will wait until january. it is already harming the economy. if we wait for a fiscal cliff, it would be responsible. if you look at the pieces of the fiscal cliff, there is consensus that is going to go away. i consider it inconceivable that we will get rid of the affordable care tax between now and january 1. that is another tax that will be there for sure. that places a premium on the rest of the tax hikes and spending cuts. the sensible thing to do is to say to congress, you know, your strongest instincts, a thing in your dna into kick to thin down the road, please do that. when you get to the sequester, the $109 billion in across-the- board spending cuts and by and large, that is horrifically bad policy. that has to be gotten rid of, the question about tax policy. it has done horrific things. the only thing to rem
to pay for $5 trillion in the tax cuts and $2 trillion in the defense spending that the military says it does not need is by asking the middle-class to pay more. i refuse to do that. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or raising their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut, just to pay for more tax cuts that we cannot afford. i will never turn medicare into a voucher. governor romney doubled down on the proposal last night, and he is wrong. no american should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies. they should retire with the dignity they have earned. we will perform and strengthen medicare for a long haul, but reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more, and we will keep promise of social security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it. we will have a chance to talk about what is going on overseas, because our prosperity at home is linked to what happens abroad. four years ago, i promised to end the war in iraq, and i did. i said we would w

, which is really interesting that axelrod and company is coming up with the new defense that mitt romney is a liar, like axelrod and company is somebody we should trust? weren't they the people who came out with libya was not a spontaneous -- was a span takenious thing. they said the stimulus would keep unemployment rate by 5.3 at this point in the election cycle. they've got a lot of explaining to do. >> gretchen: that jobs report happens to be coming out today. some predictors now, it will be an hour and a half, saying unemployment will go back up, maybe by a point. back to the debate, charles krauthammer, who is critical of romney last week saying he really needs to step it up and become more aggressive. then he was complimentary when he said he absolutely really won this debate hands down. here is his analysis now on president obama. >> it's what the french call the wit of the staircase, meaning the stuff that you wish you had said, all the witty remarks and rebuttals that you never said at the dinner, but you remember on the way out. so he had all these chances last night, which aga
